Rad video


My sister just sent me this amazing video about London style! We should all dress like we live in the 1930s. (Also, did you notice how the guy disappears for a second in the 1940's when he goes off to war?)

It's part of an advertising campaign to promote a new shopping centre in the East End of London, which in turn is opening to support the London Olympics!

I love all the clothes and I'm so excited about the Olympics!!!

Like the video, great idea (though I think it's an ad for a the new Westfield shopping mall that's opening next week(?)) I live in London - that's how we dance round here!

My colleagues were behind this video! No one expected it to be such a hit...it's fabulous :)

LeeLee said...

What a lovely video. Great concept, great everything. :)

Joanna Goddard said...

oh wow, notting hill girl, that is awesome! and so funny that it's for a mall -- i figured it must be an ad for something since it ends with "sept 13, 2011."

Elaine said...

How wonderful! It always amazes me that people find such creative ways to advertise. I love it!

Wallace said...

Love that! How fun! Was I the only one thinking about how many times those people must have had to do that dance to get all of those takes and clothing changes synced??? Haha!

And I definitely agree -- let's all dress 1930's all the time... so classy. ;)

Brilliant video! It's hard to pick a favourite, but I *think* it's the forties. Having said that, I loved the thirties and the fifties too, and the nineties made me smile! :)

Sabina said...

I love that video too!

I just wanted to add a plant tip here, because the comment list on that post is already sooo long and somehow my comments never seem to appear when I add to those :-( not sure why or what I'm doing wrong.

Plant tip: a really beautiful plant, which is easy to maintain and which doesn't need a lot of TLC or light is the Alocasia. It comes in different varieties and looks a little like a banana tree (which always die on me :-))

Good luck!

Caitlin Szabo said...

love it!

Joanna Goddard said...

E., sounds great, thank you for the tip! (i think the reason your don't see your comment is bc it's on the second page of comments once the comment list gets long. so even if you don't see it, i will! :) thank you SO much for the advice!!

Joanna Goddard said...

wallace, haha, i thought the same thing! matching up all their exact positions must have been insane!!!

Liliana said...

Super creative. How funny is it that a lot of those outfits are totally in style right now? Love it!

sara said...

This is so rad! It's funny to get a glimpse of the styles you use to wear...the 40s look so glam, the 90s not so much.

Gaia said...

Whoah this is so fun! Thanks!

Sara Szatmary said...

Wow! What an amazing video!!

The Sweet Cupcaker said...

wonderful little video! I wish we still dressed like the 30's as well! it's crazy to see how the dance changes too! This must have taken forever but so worth it!

Carlen said...

I leave for Europe next Friday for a two week romp, five days of which will be spent in London. This video made my excitement skyrocket!

jen fuller said...

i love that! i always wish i lived in the 20s/30s/40s for the fashion. so beautiful!

Catherine Masi said...

Yay for wonderfully creative advertising... I can watch this again and again- especially for the 1920's- 40's styles. And is it me, or does anyone else feel that the "sex sells" advertising is just lazy and wholly uncreative?

We love this video! It's so much fun! We actually didn't notice the disappearing act in the 1940's, just thought it was an oversight. Great catch!

It really is part of an advertising strategy to market a fresh purchasing middle within the East Stop based in london, which experts claim is starting to aid the Greater london Olympics!

I like all the clothes that i'm therefore excited about the particular Olympics!!!
